Sports Media Weekly No. 155- Ed Sherman, The Sherman Report

We’ve been away for the past two weeks but Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are back for a new edition of Sports Media Weekly.

We are pleased to be joined for the entire show by our good friend Ed Sherman of The Sherman Report.

We begin the news portion of the show by looking back at reports that viewership over at ESPN for the second quarter was at its lowest for that quarter in seven years.

We then look ahead to next week’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game on Fox, not to the action that will be taking place on the field but to the planned 90 second promo Fox is set to debut touting next month’s launch of Fox Sports 1.

With the start of NFL training camps on the doorstep comes news from CBS Sports that it will produce a weekly four hour pre-game show this fall on the CBS Sports Network (CBSSN).  We all agree that as long as NFL is king and you have broadcast rights, adding NFL programming may be better than what is already available on CBSSN.

We then move to Ken’s piece in Awful Announcing on plans by two newspapers to get into the electronic media business on their websites.

We wrap by looking at the uproar in Chicago over Justin Bieber standing on the Blackhawks’ logo in the United Center locker room.
